The temporal relationship between the extracellular rod photovoltage and light-induced net Ca fluxes across the rod plasma membrane is investigated. The net Ca flux measurements are derived from extracellular Ca concentration measurements at the receptor surface of the isolated bullfrog retina. As reported previously, illumination leads to a net Ca efflux, which is followed by a net influx, during which the released Ca is taken back up. However, the net Ca flux has two characteristics that are… CONTINUE READING
